Open my book, “The Mandala Guidebook” and turn to the contributor gallery in the back where you’ll find ten artists with ten very different design styles. You’ll also notice that they come from all over the globe. It just goes to show that creating mandalas is a universal art form and past time.
I asked each artist a question about their mandala practice. Unfortunately in the book I could only include 50 words. Fortunately, I have a website where I could include their full responses along with their bios.
Read through on how Michael McGrath’s (Bro. Mickey as I know him) mandala practice can have a prayerful aspect and how healing it is for Donna Gentile to make mandalas. I was inspired to read how many of these very talented artists started later in life. It is a reminder that we are never too old to pick up something new like creating mandalas.
Enjoy meeting these lovely and talented mandala artists.
(You’ll find Claudia’s artwork in chapter 7 on color.)
